A New Era

Coach Dino Babers makes his Panther football debut in Thursday's season opener

The Panther football season kicks off Thursday night at O'Brien Field when Eastern Illinois University opens the 2012 season against the Salukis of Southern Illinois University.

It's a "New Era" of EIU football as first-year coach Dino Babers takes over patrol of the Panther sideline from 25-year mainstay Bob Spoo. The matchup is a familiar one, however; EIU and SIU have met 61 times since 1913 and closed the 2011 season against each other in Carbondale.

For a full preview of the game, make sure to check out this story.
